This is the April 15, 2019 oversight field hearing on "Oil and Gas Development: Impacts on Air Pollution and Sacred Sites" held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources of the Committee on Natural Resources. From the opening statement of Alan S. Lowenthal: "The Subcommittee is meeting today to hear testimony on the impacts of oil and gas development on air quality and sacred sites. Across the West, the availability of oil and gas has been both a blessing and a curse. These resources are a major component of the economy of many parts of the country, and in some places very, very dramatically, such as in the Permian Basin in southeastern New Mexico. [...] But these benefits come with significant consequences to our air, our water, our climate, our health, wild natural places, and sacred sites. Today, the Subcommittee is holding the first in what will be a series of hearings that will examine the impacts of oil and gas development and serve as a platform to hear from local voices, state officials, tribal members, and experts." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael J. Chavarria, Michelle Lujan Grisham, James Jimenez, Myron Lizer, David Lyon, Rickie Nez, Craig O'Neill, Kendra Pinto, Sarah Cottrell Propst, Paul Reed, Don Schreiber, Brian D. Vallo, and Barbara Webber.
